Seaweed in the city

31 October 2021

On the 7th of November, Dr Niki Vermeulen and colleagues will be hosting an introductory seaweed foray at Granton beach, a seaweed art workshop at Granton:hub and a seaweed food tasting event in which participants will be able to try foods made with seaweed and learn about the growing production and uses of seaweed in Scotland.

While many may know of the health benefits of seaweed, few may be aware of it as a potential solution to the climate crisis. Seaweed can play a huge role in absorbing carbon emissions, regenerating marine ecosystems, creating biofuel and renewable plastics. As the seaweed industry grows, coastal communities should have a voice in the debate about the future development of the seaweed industry.
